Service Coordination Program

Service Coordination Program Children Under 18 Years of Age

  • This program provides service coordination and support to any family or individual where the individual has been identified as having diagnosis of a developmental disability and/or autism.
  • For a developmental disability this specifically means a sub-average general intellectual functioning with an IQ at or below 70 (2nd percentile or lower) or a diagnosis of Austism Spectrum Disorder.
  • It is a family centered service which assesses, plans, coordinates and identifies the needs of the individual and the community programs, resources and supports they may be eligible to access.
  • Service is tailored to the individual and family circumstances. It is outcome focused with active participation by the family through service delivery.

  • Service Coordination is available for adults with a documented developmental disability.
  • Service Coordinators are respectful of the cultural diversity of individuals and families.
  • Service Coordinators are flexible, promote social inclusion, encourage individual choice, independence and rights.
  • Service Coordinators assist with future planning, help navigate through the adult service system and are responsive with active participation by the adult.
  • Service Coordinators provide linkages to services and offer a solution focused service and support with the adult/family.
